Multi-horned Sheep - Species Detail
Also called four-horned sheep, or Jacob sheep (biblical).
DESCRIPTION Shoulder height about 34 inches (86 cm). Weight 100-125 pounds (45-57 kg).
A breed, or breeds, of short-tailed, woolly domestic sheep in which the male normally has four horns, though occasionally as many as five or six. The two upper horns are larger and can grow in almost any direction; the two lower horns are smaller and are usually mouflon-shaped. A great variety of horn configurations can occur, even in the same flock. Females on Texas game ranches are hornless, but those in other parts of the world may grow short, mouflon-shaped horns. Multi-horned sheep come in a variety of colors, including shades of black, brown, gray and white, and many individuals are piebald (spotted or blotched).
